Slow Business

19 Apr 2010

Non profit organization Slow Money has launched a contest to identify small food enterprises that embody the Slow Money Principles and reward them with support such as advertising, connections to investors, and promotion to the organization’s growing network.

The organization is asking Americans to use their knowledge of their local food systems to nominate a business – a community-supported agriculture, farmer, processor, market, niche organic brand, slow food restaurant or other small food enterprise. The website will then unveil the entire list and open voting to the Slow Money community. The winners will receive prizes of free advertising, money, and invitations to the Slow Money national gathering. Every business nominated will have a chance to win and will additionally gain exposure through the website to the national network of shoppers, investors and friends.

“It’s a great opportunity to celebrate small food enterprises that are preserving and restoring fertility,” said founder Woody Tasch. “It’s a wonderful way for us to build our own community of nurture capitalists, finding new ways to bring our money back down to earth.”

Slow Money is a non-profit organization dedicated to the concept of investing in small food enterprises and local food systems to save the economy and the planet. The organization believes in building a more sustainable future through investing in local communities by supporting local family farmers and sustainable food ventures.
